There’s always some part of the world or someone in the world who needs help, who needs to be supported so that they have a brighter future. Sometimes you just need a little push or a little help to do what you want to do and achieve what you want to achieve. That’s what the SEED project is all about.
Africa has the youngest population in the world, but 90% of the youth who have entered primary school never make it to university. The SEED project aims to reverse these odds. They are trying to develop young African leaders through Education and Employment, Basketball, Gender Equality, and Youth Leadership.

So much joy coming to Senegal to support The @seedproject, founded by #AmadouGalloFall, President of @NBA Africa. SEED is an International non-governmental organization that uses sport as a mechanism to identify, cultivate and educate future leaders. With the involvement of organizations like #Nike and the #NBA, their Annual Hoop Forum is a week full of sports and community, with a focus on the importance of social leadership, how to prepare for higher education and how to use the tools learned to aid in the economic development of your native land. I absolutely love what #TheSEEDProject is doing, and the discussion they’re driving within the community; to empower young African people to realize their potential for education and leadership. I feel this is a conversation to be heard around the world, which is why I’m so honored to be involved with SEED’s initiatives. 🙏🏾 #NAOMIAFRICA 🇸🇳
It is an international non-governmental organization that aims to identify, cultivate and educate future leaders through various mechanisms. Now, big brands like Nike and NBA have also started supporting this and their Annual Hoop Forum is a week full of sports and community.
The SEED Project has served more than 2,000 students weekly across Senegal, The Gambia and the United States to ensure that today’s youth have access to quality education, high-performance sports training, and the leadership tools to make big dreams come true. 92% of SEED students have matriculated to university or secured a job.
